Sounds like something is under the keyboard in that area. anything spill down there? you should be able to open the unit, and remove keyboard,and blow it out with compressed air(DO NOT do that while it's still installed in computer)

The meaning? There is no implicit meaning behind the term thinkpad, it was a made up term by IBM for their laptops. The ThinkPad name itself was inspired by leather-bound pocket notepads
issued to all IBM employees with the corporate motto 'Think' embossed on
the cover. The combination of Think and NotePad lead to the name ThinkPad.
IBM's corporate naming team was initially against using the ThinkPad
name since all previous IBM computers were referred to by model numbers
rather than names. However, the popularity of the ThinkPad brand with
the press convinced IBM to retain the name.

Turn off power to the computer. Wait about 30 seconds. Hold down the F1 key while you turn on power and keep holding down that key until the setup screen comes up. Go to the network boot section and disable Network Boot. Save setting and restart. That should fix it.
The IBM laptop has a key on the top row on the right side.It has two functions. One function is the scroll lock on the bottom of the key.The other function is the numbers lock which is at the top of the key.To unlock the right side of the keyboard when numbers are coming up instead of letters, hold down the shift key and the numbers lock key and that will unlock it.
goto the device manager and uninstall the keyboard and restart the system. check that the error is still coming..
If still the error remain same ...shutdown the system and power off and just clap the each and every key of the keyboard to release the keys if any stuck. Check that error by rebooting the system. Hope that the problem is solved.
If still not then maybe the keyboard is going bad.
